Bitcoin trading for beginners: how to get started

Bitcoin trading for beginners: how to get started

Trading is neither black magic nor gambling. To be successful, you need to understand the market and keep an eye on the big investors. In the new trading course for beginners, you will learn why the „smart money“ invests so successfully – and how to develop your own profitable trading strategy.

At which Bitcoin price should I enter, when should I take profits? These are the basic questions that a Bitcoin (day) trader has to ask himself every day. Technical price analysis can help to identify trends and develop Bitcoin Storm trading strategies, but it has its limits. Because the best strategy does not help if those who really move the markets, namely the institutional large investors, the „smart money“, follow a different course. But a remedy is at hand: with the Bitcoin trading course for beginners on the BTC-ACADEMY.

Beyond the Candlesticks: Smart Money Sets the (Bitcoin) Course

Hedge funds and other asset managers are not known for willingly sharing their market insights and trading strategies with a broad public. No wonder: after all, they profit from an asymmetrical information situation. The fact that the „insiders“ reap profits from trading while interested laypeople – derided by the big players as „dumb money“ – are often left looking down the tube is not only annoying; it is also diametrically opposed to the crypto ideal of decentralisation and democratisation of the financial system.

For this reason, we are extremely pleased that we were able to win Robert Rother, an absolute trading icon, as a lecturer for our BTC ACADEMY. The professional investor had built up a multi-million financial empire in China – until it became too much for the Chinese government. Robert ended up innocently in prison in China for seven years and seven months for his success. Robert has written about his experiences and survival tactics in the Spiegel bestseller Dragon Years.

Now Robert has returned to the trading world – with a challenge to smart money. In the „Crypto Trading for Beginners“ course, Robert provides insights into the mindset of institutional investors that only an insider can deliver.

I want to teach you how to read the footprints of so-called smart money in the market. The banks, the hedge funds leave footprints in the market. And you can recognise these footprints. Coming from that background myself, I know what you have to look for to recognise when to buy and when to sell.

Biden’s stimuleringspakket van 3 biljoen dollar kan de Bitcoin

Biden’s stimuleringspakket van 3 biljoen dollar kan de Bitcoin de lucht in sturen.

Het fiscale stimuleringsplan van de Amerikaanse president Joe Biden zou de prijs van Bitcoin kunnen laten exploderen…

Het plan van de inkomende Biden-administratie om de Amerikaanse economie met triljoenen dollars te overspoelen zou de volgende opleving van de Bitcoin’s (BTC) stierenmarkt kunnen Bitcoin Investor uitlokken naarmate meer investeerders hun toevlucht zoeken tot de Amerikaanse dollar.

Axios, een in Arlington gevestigde nieuwsafzet, meldde donderdag dat Joe Biden het Congres heeft gevraagd om $2.000 subsidiebetalingen aan burgers van de VS te verdelen om de economische verwoesting te helpen bestrijden die wordt veroorzaakt door de COVID-19 pandemie. Bovendien heeft de nieuwe president een belasting- en infrastructuurpakket van 3 biljoen dollar voorgesteld als onderdeel van zijn „Build Back Better“ programma.

Biden herhaalde zijn oproep voor directe hulp aan burgers na het teleurstellende banenrapport van vrijdag, waarin het verlies van 140.000 banen in december aan het licht kwam:

„Economisch onderzoek bevestigt dat in omstandigheden als de huidige crisis, met name met zo’n lage rente, onmiddellijke actie – met inbegrip van financiering van het tekort – de economie zal helpen“.

Als 2020 als benchmark wordt genomen, zou de nieuwe stimuleringsgolf een andere katalysator voor Bitcoin kunnen zijn, waarbij nieuwe fondsen op de markt komen die in de activaprijzen worden weerspiegeld.

Donald Trump, een Republikein, heeft ook zijn toevlucht genomen tot economische stimulering. Onder zijn leiding heeft de VS in maart een historisch stimuleringspakket van 2 biljoen dollar aangenomen. Bovendien ondertekende Trump vorige maand een maatregel van $900 miljard, wat de weg vrijmaakte voor $600 subsidiecontroles.

Het inflatiebeleid van de federale overheid valt samen met de recordbrekende interventies van de Federal Reserve, die in 2020 biljoenen dollars heeft ingezet om een liquiditeitscrisis tegen te gaan en de rentetarieven onder controle te houden.

In 2020 explodeerde de balans van de Federal Reserve.

Hoewel deze maatregelen sterke steun hebben gegeven aan risicovolle activa, een categorie die voorheen Bitcoin omvatte, ziet de opkomende theorie over BTC cryptocijfers een rol spelen bij het afdekken van de inflatie.

Dit fenomeen wordt niet alleen bevestigd door de historische prestaties van Bitcoin in de afgelopen 11 jaar, maar ook door de nieuwe golf van institutioneel geld die de markt betreedt. Instellingen kopen Bitcoin met een specifiek doel, en op een dag kunnen ze de „mega HODLers“ van de industrie worden.

Het verhaal van Bitcoin als digitaal goud is een van de belangrijkste katalysatoren geweest achter de benadering van de crypto-activa door de instellingen. Het hielp de 300% rally van Bitcoin in 2020 in stand te houden, waardoor de prijs in de laatste drie weken verdubbelde. In 2021 zou deze trend kunnen toenemen naarmate de koopkracht van de dollar verder afneemt.

Zelfs JPMorgan Chase heeft erkend dat Bitcoin een deel van het marktaandeel van goud, het traditionele safe-haven activum, steelt. Op vrijdag was één Bitcoin meer dan 22 ons goud waard, een nieuw hoogtepunt.

Deribit exchange will require identity verification before the end of the year

Deribit, the leading exchange for Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH) options contracts, will require all of its users to verify their identity before the end of the year.

Le KYC arrives in Deribit

The information was shared by John Jansen , CEO of Deribit , to The Block media. Initially, this measure was to come into effect on February 10, 2021, but the platform is stepping up the pace, by imposing Bitcoin Profit on its users earlier than expected.

For Deribit, this decision is crucial , as regulators raise the tone on platform compliance. Indeed, American residents are theoretically not allowed to use the platform, but they can very easily access it with a VPN.

But although Deribit is based in Panama, the platform must exercise extreme caution. By imposing KYC measures, the company is ensuring that Americans cannot access its markets.

Thus, Deribit avoids attracting the wrath of regulatory bodies in the United States , which will save it from numerous complications, both financial and legal.

As of this writing, Deribit largely dominates the Bitcoin options contract market. Well ahead of CME, OKEx, Huobi and LedgerX, Deribit occupies on average 75% of daily volumes :

Verification measures intensify

This Deribit requirement therefore comes shortly after a similar decision taken by BitMEX , which had also set February 2021 to impose the KYC.

However, its recent difficulties with the US authorities have been a game-changer, forcing the platform to advance the deadline to November 5.

Little by little, KYC measures are imposed across the world , and almost all centralized platforms now have to follow the rules to survive.

A real irony of fate for Deribit, who had left the European Union to escape AMLD5 , a directive which since January 2020 requires exchanges to disclose the identity of their users and to report suspicious activity.

By settling in Panama, Deribit hoped that it would not have to impose a KYC on its customers, but the reality of things quickly caught up with the company .

Elrond believes he has defeated Cardano, EOS and Algorand


Elrond (ERD) believes he has what it takes to beat the giants of the world of proof-of-stake, or PoS.

OKEx announces the integration of Latamex to its platform
This Romanian PoS blockchain raised USD 3.25 million in an initial exchange offer, or IEO, in July 2019. Elrond’s CEO, Beniamin Mincu, told Cointelegraph that the IEO process at Binance was very difficult. However, he explained that through perseverance, the project managed to raise the necessary funds and receive significant exposure.

Ethereum 2.0 – sooner than expected

Elrond’s technology stack reads very similar to what had been anticipated for Ethereum (ETH) 2.0: sharding, secure PoS, a virtual machine; however, Mincu made a number of distinctions between the two:

„It’s similar. But the difference is essentially that Bitcoin Method is trying to launch this in two years, when Elrond is launching this immediately. We’ve finished all the technology. Everything is working. We can process 10,000 transactions per second right now.“

The blockchain sector in Japan is growing by over 30% since 2019

Elrond claims to have a better architecture than other PoS blockchains
When asked about how Elrond plans to compete with much larger PoS projects such as Cardano (ADA), EOS (EOS) and Algorand (ALGO), Mincu said

„I think, compared to everyone else, Elrond has a fundamentally more efficient architecture. Therefore, we outperform them in any way that can be measured, secondly, from a resource reward perspective for PoS architectures, we have a more competitive reward system right now for validators.

Mincu believes that one of the keys to success in this space is the user experience, and says that Elrond has a big advantage there. Not only to succeed against other blockchains, but also to take adoption to the next level.

Coinshares erwirbt Gabi Trading: Neue Einheit handelt Krypto im Wert von 3 Milliarden Dollar im Jahr 2019

Coinshares startete am Donnerstag sein Handelsgeschäft, Coinshares Capital Markets (CSCM), und berichtete, dass die Einheit im Jahr 2019 Krypto-Währungen im Wert von über 3 Milliarden US-Dollar und im ersten Quartal 2020 im Wert von 1,5 Milliarden US-Dollar gehandelt hat.

Gabi Trading wird umbenannt

Der britische Digital Asset Manager ist laut einer Presseerklärung im Begriff, Gabi Trading, ein Unternehmen, das sich in der Endphase der Übernahme befindet, im Wesentlichen umzubenennen.

Firma bietet maßgeschneiderte Absicherungs- und Risikomanagementlösungen für BTC

CSCM betreibt ein Portfolio von Handelswerkzeugen, das elektronischen Handel, Liquiditätsbereitstellung sowie Kreditvergabe und -aufnahme umfasst. Außerdem bietet es maßgeschneiderte Absicherungs- und Risikomanagementlösungen für BTC-Minenarbeiter, Börsen, Makler und Krypto-Fonds.

Coinshares Capital Markets ist ein aktiver Eigenhandelszweig der Global Advisors Group. Im Rahmen der Umfirmierung wird das Unternehmen nun seine Dienstleistungen für relevante Gegenparteien öffnen.

„Diese Initiativen sind Teil der Mission von Coinshares, den Kunden ein ausgeklügeltes, zweckmäßiges Angebot an Produkten und Dienstleistungen speziell für digitale Vermögenswerte zu bieten“, sagte das Unternehmen.

„Diese Übernahme ist Teil einer größeren strategischen Neuausrichtung unter der neuen Führung des Unternehmens, die sich aus dem Chief Executive Officer Jean-Marie Mognetti, dem Chief Strategy Officer Meltem Demirors und dem Chief Revenue Officer Frank Spiteri zusammensetzt“, fügte das Unternehmen hinzu.

Broker-Dealer-Lizenz von der US-Aufsichtsbehörde erhalten dank Firmenübernahme

Im November 2019 verstärkte Coinshares seine amerikanische Präsenz durch den Erwerb einer Broker-Dealer-Lizenz von der US-Aufsichtsbehörde für die Finanzindustrie.

Die Lizenz erhielt sie durch den Erwerb eines unter Group Capital registrierten Broker-Händlers, der dann eine Namensänderung in Coinshares Capital durchmachte.

CSCM hat eine historische Beziehung zu Coinshares, da sie die passiven Produkte und die Fondsfamilie des Unternehmens unterstützt hat.

Die Einheit hat zuvor auch eigene Handelsstrategien für das sechs Jahre alte Unternehmen zur Verwaltung digitaler Vermögenswerte eingesetzt, das Büros in Jersey, London, Stockholm und New York unterhält.
